at 1:50 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, I went downstairs to get some lunch and coffee, but their "bistro" in the lobby was closed! They shut it down, I was told, because they were not busy. It won't open again until 5 p.m.
In other words, despite the hefty price you pay to stay here every night, the place is too cheap to keep its "bistro" open so the people staying here can get lunch on a Sunday afternoon.
Also, although they serve drinks (but not until the evening), there is no bar.
And the parking costs an arm and a leg each day.
Try the Doubletree a few miles away in Arcadia. Free parking, for one thing.
